The Fun Has Begun – Paintings and Tours!

Painting Class - Completed Paintings of Four Poppies

It’s been a while since my last update – that’s because it’s been a busy time here at Bent Ladder!

One week ago, we hosted our first ever painting class led by Connie Kramer from Art Break. Connie provided step-by-step instructions to 15 budding artists as they sipped glasses of their favorite Bent Ladder cider, and enjoyed light appetizers of assorted cheeses, dips, crackers and fruit.  It was great fun and 15 masterpieces were taken home at the end of the evening. For all who are wishing they had been here, we are offering a Saturday afternoon painting class (led by artist Katie Harding) on March 25th, 1:00pm-3:00pm, and another Thursday evening class on April 20th, 6:30-8:30pm (led by Connie Kramer). I’ll be posting details on the events page of our Bent Ladder website and on Facebook in a week or so. Check back.

And wait, there’s more…

This past Saturday was the launch of our Saturday Cellar Tours and Samplings. Matt Vodraska – owner, cider/wine maker and mastermind of Bent Ladder – led 18 guests on an informative tour of the apple and grape processing areas; tank, barrel and bottling rooms; and work area. The tour culminated in a sampling of three cider varieties, each paired with tastes of their raw ingredients. Tour guests sampled Black Gold Cider with Gold Rush apples, Original Cider with Cortland apples, and Cherry Cider with dried Montmorency cherries and juice. Guests then returned to the tasting room to continue an enjoyable evening as they purchased glasses and pitchers of cider, as well as cheese boards, bread boards and dips.

and the fun continues…

Tour and Samplings will continue through February and March, and are open to guests 21 years of age and older. They begin promptly at 5:00pm and are a great bargain at only $5 per person. We limit tour size to 20 guests, and reservations are strongly recommended. This Saturday’s tour (February 11th) is already SOLD OUT, but we have spaces remaining on all future dates.
